Liposuction in Dercum’s disease

Berntorp, Erik LU ; Berntorp, Kerstin LU and Brorson, Håkan LU (2016) In Liposuction: Principles and Practice p.657-660
Abstract

Adiposis dolorosa or Dercum’s disease is associated with pain. The symptoms are very therapy resistant and may have a major impact on quality of life. The authors describe the diagnosis and classification as well as treatment including medications and surgery. Liposuction seems to be a logical treatment of the symptoms in Dercum’s disease, but according to the experience at the authors’ hospital, the improvement of pain has a rather short duration.
